Yep, change your password with a complicated one.

The old one would be invalid after that (cannot be used)

If you're using any local e-mail clients like Outlook, scan your computer for viruses/malware using your AV/Anti malware software.

If you do not have any, use Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Antimalware:-

Download Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) from here:
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows

Download the updates for MSE from here:
Install the latest Microsoft Security Essentials definition updates - Get the latest definitions - Microsoft Malware Protection Center

Download malwarebytes from here:
Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.62 - FileHippo.com

And the malwarebytes updates from here:

Should be safe.

The best password would have lower case (a) and upper case letters (A), symbols (@#$%^&*()!) and numbers (0,1-9) in it... also make sure it's at least 10 characters long...

Thunderbird 24.0.1 - Import Yahoo Mail Folders, Contacts & Yahoo Mail
The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open.
